Today I’m sharing a variety of ways to make the letter S in preschool.

Next, he made an S out of sea shells. As a child I lived by the beach, so we always had jars of sea shells we’d gathered. Now I’m planted in the Midwest, so my son used sea shells I bought at a craft store.
He made an S out of string.
He used his finger to write the letter in salt.
When we switch to pencil (or marker!) and paper, we always start with these letters of all sizes handwriting pages. Sometimes my Four isn’t up for the smallest letters, so we just leave them.
My level 2 pages are a great next step.
My Four is modeling how to begin our level 3 pages, but he didn’t actually complete it. If my kids are ready for them, we start these pages at age four. But if they are resistant, we set them aside. So far my kids have been most ready for these as they get close to turning five (or soon afterward).

Our curriculum includes lessons for teaching both upper and lowercase letter names and sounds. You’ll get three lessons per letter, built-in review, simple handwriting practice, rhyming, syllable counting, phonemic awareness, and a whole lot more!
